Prior to joining Imperial College London, in May 2016, Geoffrey worked at the University of Ottawa’s Human Movement Biomechanics Laboratory, where he pursued his PhD and examined the effects of cam-type femoroacetabular impingement on mechanical hip joint loading. Geoffrey determined anatomical and functional characteristics associated with clinical symptoms and simulated subject-specific finite element models; in efforts to assess which individuals are at a higher risk of early hip joint degeneration.

Geoffrey continues to examine hip joint biomechanics using in vitro cadaveric methods combined with a state-of-the-art robotic manipulator, to better understand the effects of morphology, capsular ligaments, microinstability, implants and surgery on joint loading.

The ongoing research has led to numerous published contributions and presentations at international conferences and his work has been well received in the orthopaedics and biomechanics communities, with recognitions from the Orthopaedic Research Society, International Society of Biomechanics, and Canadian Medical and Engineering Society.
